National Innovation and the Academic Research Enterprise

Dill, D. and Van Vugt, F. National Innovation and the Academic Research Enterprise: Public Policy in Global Perspective.  Johns Hopkins University Press, US. ISBN: 0-8018-9374-7. Pages : 592.

This volume aims to analyse the impact of public policy on the knowledge economies and higher education systems of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as the overall European Union. The contributors examine the new relationship between higher education and national systems of innovation in times where innovation is a national economy’s most valuable asset. How is public policy affecting academic research? How are postsecondary institutions responding? These are some of the questions addressed in this study. The book concludes with an assessment of the effectiveness of current national innovation policy on higher education systems.
